Safe Ways to Clean your Mobile Phone
Professionals of the mobile repair Dubai provide you with effective solutions that you should try to clean your mobile phone with utmost perfection. Apart from this, all these solutions are not based on harsh chemical solutions, so there will be no chances that they can harm your hands or gadgets.
Let’s understand the cleaning solutions in detail.
1. Wipes is the Best Solution
As we have discussed earlier, brands like Google and Apple recommend you to use 70% alcohol wipes to clean and disinfect your mobile phone. One of the best things about these wipes is that you can use them on all the exterior surfaces of your mobile phone. For example, rear casing and display.
However, one of the common drawbacks of these wipes is that millions of people are searching for it and due to this it will be difficult to get these wipes. Don’t worry as here we have provided an alternative mobile cleaning solution for you.
2. Use Water & Mild Soap
Unfortunately, if you haven’t got the wipes suggested by Apple and Google, we suggest you use water and mild soap. Now, to proceed, at first, you need to prepare a mixture of water and mild soap. Keep in mind, at any cost, you shouldn’t put your mobile phone within the soapy mixture as this can completely damage the screen and at that time you don’t have any other choice rather than to visit mobile repair Dubai.
Therefore, we advise you to take a microfiber cloth and dip it within the mixture. Remember that, you shouldn’t use paper towels or tissue papers. Make sure that excess water shouldn’t enter within the microfiber cloth, as this can damage the screen, especially if you don’t have a waterproof smartphone.
3. Perform a Light Rinse (Only for the Waterproofing Screen)
Before applying this tactic, we want to inform you, this solution is specifically for those who have a waterproof phone along with proper waterproof certification. Ingress protection, commonly known as IP rating, that certifies your smartphone against the contact with water and dust ingress. However, it totally depends on the rating number.
Now, if you are using an IP67 certified waterproof phone, then up to 30 minutes, your phone can face immersion in up to 1 meter. Let’s take an example, Apple iPhone XS can be soaked up to 2 meters for a maximum of 25 to 30 minutes. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S9 can be immersed up to 1.5 meters for 20 to 25 minutes.
Hence, if the above two cleaning solutions don’t seem fruitful to you, we suggest you wash the smartphone in the freshwater. While attempting this procedure, be aware of the screen cracks as the water might enter your phone through the cracks and can damage it.
4. Don’t use Products like Bleach
In case, you face difficulties to get the wipes recommended by Apple, to clean your device, you might think of using household cleaning products to clean the mobile and that is totally wrong.
Top brands, such as Google & Apple warned the mobile owners, not to use any harsh chemical as these cleaners can destroy the protective layer of the screen. Especially when you are using chemicals such as bleach for a long time.
Apart from this, you must always keep away your mobile device from the kitchen oil. Recently, a statement was released by the AT & T company, where they have clearly mentioned that even a tissue paper can crack the screen, especially when you use it a lot, and with excessive pressure.
5. Clean the Phone Case
According to the experts, if you use a phone case in order to cover your mobile, then you must clean the phone case, as well, to prevent the coronavirus spreading. You must give extra attention if you store your cards, money in the phone case.
